FMSD Virtual Art Show
Please see the message below about the FMSD Virtual Art Show. The webpage that has been created can be accessed through the button below this message.
Welcome to the Fort Mill Schools Virtual Art Show! Our dedicated visual arts teachers have been working hard to create unique learning experiences for students across our district this year. Each day, students are exploring creative expression, developing artistic techniques, and learning to communicate visually. The artwork displayed was selected and curated to celebrate our visual arts programs. We are so proud of the students who were chosen to represent their school in the 2021 FMSD Virtual Art Show!

FMMS Summer Reading List
There are no projects or worksheets that need to be completed during the summer. Instead, when students return to school in August, they will participate in book club discussions about the books they chose. If they want to keep post-it note annotations in their books as reminders of things they would like to discuss, this is encouraged but no required.
This year has brought about a new challenge in our Junior Jacket Community. With masks, visitor restrictions, and the inability to meet in large groups as a school community, it has been difficult to get to know one another. We wanted to continue building our sense of community and bring everyone together like the amazing family we are. So we decided to do a little project called "Bee-hind the Mask".
Each week, from now until the end of the school year, we will spotlight several staff members, using a picture and their answers to a fun survey we sent out for everyone to complete. Hopefully we will all be able to be together in person again soon, but until then, please enjoy getting to know our Junior Jacket Staff a little bit better!
This week we are featuring Tracy Simpson (Reading Recovery), Natalya Segarra (1st Grade), Erin Love (Lead Teacher, and Andrea Fraiman (2nd Grade).
